Module Lock_file

module Lock_file: sig .. end
Async.Lock_file is a wrapper that provides async equivalents for Core.Lock_file.

val create : ?message:string ->
?close_on_exec:bool ->
?unlink_on_exit:bool -> string -> bool Import.Deferred.t
create ?message path tries to create a file at path containing the text message, pid if none provided. It returns true on success, false on failure. Note: there is no way to release the lock or the fd created inside! It will only be released when the process dies.
val create_exn : ?message:string ->
?close_on_exec:bool ->
?unlink_on_exit:bool -> string -> unit Import.Deferred.t
create_exn ?message path is like create except that it throws an exception on failure instead of returning a boolean value
val waiting_create : ?message:string ->
?close_on_exec:bool ->
?unlink_on_exit:bool -> string -> unit Import.Deferred.t
wait_create ~path ~message becomes determined when the file at path gets locked. Equivalent to Core.Std.Lock_file.blocking_create.
val is_locked : string -> bool Import.Deferred.t
is_locked path returns true when the file at path exists and is locked, false otherwise.
